Dwight Howard hasn't shown off nearly as much of his goofy side this year as he did in the past, thanks to an offseason vow to become more serious this season. But after his Orlando Magic rallied to beat the Boston Celtics 86-78 on Christmas Day, Howard couldn't help himself. He put on a wig and dressed up like Tito Jackson for his postgame interview session with reporters.
Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel has more video of Howard actually speaking to reporters in the wig after the game. At one point, he was asked a serious question, and he still couldn't help himself, laughing like the Dwight Howard of old. Given the nature of this win (it snapped Boston's 14-game winning streak) and the amount of change Howard has been dealing with thanks to the recent trades to bring in Gilbert Arenas, Hedo Turkoglu and Jason Richardson, you can't blame Howard for reverting back to his old self.â†µ
